Engaging phonics instruction is not easy for teachers to plan for and takes A LOT of time to pull all necessary resources together. We all know that in order for children to become proficient readers and writers, phonics instruction is a necessary component in every classroom. The challenge for many teachers is to teach phonics in an embedded, connected, meaningful way. Isolated phonics instruction does not help students become proficient readers and writers. Students must understand how sounds, letters, and words work and practice using these in continuous text.
The Common Core State Standards have 7 areas that teachers focus instruction in English Language Arts: speaking and listening, phonemic awareness, phonics, fluency, comprehension, vocabulary, and writing. One way to ensure phonics instruction is not left in isolation is to teach phonics in each of these 7 areas and this product will give you the resources to this.
